Alice Shoffner Obituary (1939-2021) – Greensboro, NC

Shoffner, Alice Faye

November 23, 1939 – August 17, 2021

Early on Tuesday morning, August 17, 2021, God welcomed Alice Faye Shoffner to her eternal rest. She fought a good fight and is now in the care of her Heavenly Father.

A service in honor of Faye’s life will be held at New Goshen United Methodist Church on Sunday, August 22, 2021 at 2:30 p.m. The family will receive friends 30 minutes before the service from 2 p.m., everyone present must wear a mask.

She was born on November 23, 1939, in Greensboro, NC, to the late Lawrence and Lillie G. Shoffner. She was educated in the Guilford County’s public school system and attended Terra Cotta Elementary and Dudley High School.

She worked for the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC), where she, her sister and another colleague discovered a summer youth program and received a scholarship that kept youth in the community busy and enriched the lives of many children. She retired from Rexham Packaging after many years of service.

She joined the New Goshen United Methodist Church at a young age, where she sang in the senior choir, served twice on the Worship Committee, twice on the Staff Pastor Parish Relations Committee, and on the Committee on Social Concerns / Church and Society, as Secretary of the United Methodist Women.

Her friends and family loved her cake-making skills, which were perfected from her mother’s recipes. She loved dining with friends and family, be it for a special occasion or just for a visit.

Her family will miss her very much, but she will have memories that will stay with her for a lifetime. Her siblings Robert Shoffner, Helen Shoffner Sanders and Edward Shoffner preceded her in death.

She leaves to keep her memory: her sons Michael Shoffner from the home, Ronald Shoffner (Lisa); Sister-in-law Florine Shoffner; Granddaughters Kristy Shoffner, Karrie S. Poston (Arthur) of Harrisburg, NC, Ronnie Michelle S. LoCash (Daniel); 9 great-grandchildren; several nieces, nephews and many other relatives and friends.

The family would like to Dr. Thank you Yan Feng and the staff at the Cone Health Cancer Center for their care and kindness.

Forbis and Dick Guilford Chapel are honored to help the Shoffner family and condolences can be shared online at
